Abstract

In the last section we left the newly born star while it was still contracting in hydrostatic, but not yet thermal, equilibrium. Essential features of this contraction can already be understood by assuming simple homologous changes. It will turn out that the fate of such a sphere is mainly determined by the equation of state.
